no matter what cd player you use the sound quality is going to be the same,but the sound quality differs greatly depending on the quality of the cartridge you have on your turntable....the higher end stylus will give you a sound quality far exceeding that of cd where as the low end turntable with a cheap cartridge is gonna sound like shit...not only that but the low end cheap cartridge is gonna destroy your vinyl record...even with high end cartridges there is going to be a slight deterioration of the record every time it is played...the more you play the record the worse it is going to sound which is why in the long run a cd is way more practical....sound the same virtually everytime.

I *love* the idea that playing vinyl reduces its quality. I have LPs that I've owned for decades and have played often enough that I have little desire to hear them again, and they still sound fine. Granted, I've always treated them respectfully, but it's not as though I had the greatest equipment back in college.
